Reality Tea

Below Deck Francesca Rubi Ashling Lorger

Is there anything more obnoxious than a bunch of drunk, entitled college kids? Oh wait, I can think of one thing. A bunch of drunk, entitled college kids…on a yacht. In the Caribbean. Unsupervised. I honestly can’t decide what I’d rather put up with for a charter: these spoiled children or the first group of equally terrible adults. Seriously, whoever’s casting the charter guests for this season is really putting the Below Deck crew through it.

And is it me, or is the season just not…gelling yet? We’re already on the fourth episode, second charter, and something just hasn’t come together yet. We’re also on the fourth episode, second charter and nearly half the crew has broken down in tears already. I mean, is the spirit of Kate Chastain haunting My Seanna? Was the looming threat of the coronavirus ruining the vibes in the Caribbean long before the pandemic shut down production on Bravo shows across the board? I simply can’t put my finger on what’s happening with the vibe of this post-Kate season.

Below Deck Mediterranean Star Hannah Ferrier

It was clear to Below Deck Mediterranean viewers that it was time for Hannah Ferrier to move on.  She was chief stew since the series premiered, but seemed less and less enamored with her job.  Hannah often butted heads with her superior Captain Sandy Yawn, who described her as, “checked-out.”  Hannah was asked to leave the boat when valium was discovered in her possession.

Bugsy Drake took over like a breath of fresh air, and Hannah went home.  It could have been a low point for Hannah, but she seemed ready for life back on land.  Since filming for the show, Hannah hit many life milestones.  She and boyfriend Josh welcomed daughter Ava, their first child together, in October.  Hannah also celebrated her birthday on Sunday with her family, and got a very special surprise this year.

Tanya Sam cries

Rut-roh. We might need Shaggy and the Gang to come help solve a big mystery. A LOT will be happening on Real Housewives of Atlanta and the holidays are starting early. The ladies will be back to grace us with their presence on December 6, and it will be a season like no other. Moving on without NeNe Leakes, we will watch protests, pandemics, and… STRIPPERGATE.

Thanks to Cynthia Bailey and her escalando bachelorette party, RHOA fans will be seeing many body parts and trying to figure out who they belong to. Tanya Sam and Porsha Williams are the names most involved regarding who did what with a stripper. The gentleman in question denies anything happened, and so does Tanya. But the lady doth protest too much, methinks. If nothing happened and no fiancés were cheated on, it’s normal SOP to lie, lie, and deny keep calm and carry on. It seems in this case, instead of carrying on, Tanya has carried herself off of the show.

Meredith Marks Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is the gift that keeps on giving. Bravo has bestowed upon us some interesting personalities, a fresh locale, and one cast member who married her step-grandfather. (Shout out to Mary Cosby!)

In the RHOSLC premiere, we met Meredith Marks, who is a successful jewelry designer. Her husband, Seth Marks, spends most of his time in Chicago for his job. The couple has three adult children: Reid, Chloe, and Brooks Marks.

Sonja Morgan Real Housewives Of New York

The ladies of the Real Housewives of New York take beauty and weight loss seriously.  We as viewers have accompanied them for all the good, the bad, and downright quirky anti-aging trends that they’ve tried.  Cryogenic freezing for weight loss?  Anyone?  Sonja Morgan was never one to miss out.

In the most recent RHONY season, the cast had to film post-production interviews in their homes, which didn’t always give the flawless results we were accustomed to from the pre-COVID days.  But viewers noticed how healthy and radiant Sonja looked.  Some attributed it to less boozing during lockdown.  She did get a liquid nose job in July, but that doesn’t explain how vibrant her skin is.  What is her secret?

Vanderpump Rules Scheana Marie

We’ve seen a lot of changes coming out of Vanderpump Rules since filming stopped this year. After firing Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, the show seemed destined to fade. But then came the baby explosion, thanks for a very real pregnancy pact by the ladies on the show.

Stassi announced her pregnancy. Then came Lala Kent revealing she’s pregnant. Next was Brittany Cartwright, who is by far my least favorite pregnant person if you check out her ultra-annoying Instagram. Finally, after a heartbreaking miscarriage, Scheana Shay is finally having her happy ending with a pregnancy of her own. Even Katie Maloney and forever-bum husband, Tom Schwartz are trying to have a kid.

Lala Kent Randall Emmett Vanderpump Rules

Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett have mostly been in the news as of late due to Lala’s growing baby bump. Lala proudly announced she and the rest of the Pump Rules crew made a pregnancy pact, and so far she, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright have kept their word. All three are pregnant, and are now pushing for Katie Maloney to join the fold. 

Lala, of course, has also been busy getting into fights online. Her on again off again friendship with Scheana Marie is now off again. Scheana accused Lala of not supporting her during her miscarriage, and Lala denies all wrong doing. Lala also got into the middle of a feud between Real Housewives of Orange County stars Kelly Dodd and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. Perhaps Lala should instead start focusing on fixing troubles closer to home. And that trouble would be with Randall. 

Kelly Dodd

I’m not entirely sure what happened to Kelly Dodd, but she has gone from loudmouth, goodtime girl on Real Housewives of Orange County to well, a disease-denying stalker. No snark, just going with what Kelly gives the public. Kelly hasn’t been doing too many favors for her fans, the people who have supported her regardless of what comes out of her mouth.

Kelly, who is not a scientist, virologist, or physician, seems to think the worldwide pandemic known as Coronavirus isn’t a thing. After numerous social media posts discounting the disease and lowkey making fun of people who protect themselves from dying, now the Rona has directly impacted Kelly’s family. This is where you might think Kelly has a change of heart and walks back her erroneous comments on COVID. This is also where you would be wrong.
